For a period of about five years, Mrs Sian Lee really suffered with leg and back pain but neither she nor her GP had realised it was down to her worn out hips.

In September 2020, with Covid putting a stop on everything, she consulted Mr Alun John at Nuffield Health Cardiff and Vale Hospitals and at her request, had both her hips replaced on 8 December 2020. This has changed her life completely and she has returned to work and to active living in double quick time!
